It looks like Chili isn’t the only TLC alumna diving into the world of reality TV. TLC’s sultry singer Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins is set to have her own reality series which will air on, drum roll please, TLC. Presently the network has set episodes for the new year, sources tell TMZ.
Her former band mate Chilli searched for love on VH1′s “What Chilli Wants,” but T-Boz seems to be taking her reality TV experience to a much more personal level. Currently filming in Watkins’ Atlanta home, the show focuses on the singer’s struggles reviving her music career while doing double duty as a single mom and recovering from a recent health scare.
In 2011, T-Boz, who has lived with sickle-cell anemia since she was a child, revealed that she had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. “I started having headaches. They were so frequent; something was wrong,” the now forty-two year old singer told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta via Rap-Up. “My doctor called but his voice sounded funny. And I said, ‘You’re going to say something like I have a brain tumor or something, right?’ And he got quiet.”
Now, with the tumor successfully removed, T-Boz has recovered and found herself back in the recording studio. Additionally, T-Boz and Chilli announced a TLC reunion tour incorporating the late Lisa “ Left-Eye” Lopez through projections.
